Rumors are floating that Apple may be updating their product line tomorrow.

ThinkSecret believes (http://notes.thinksecret.com/secretnotes/0701tuesdaynote.shtml) that display price drops, or perhaps the rumored display update (http://www.macrumors.com/2006/12/29/8-core-mac-pro-in-january-displays-too/) may be the focus of the update, with Clovertown-based (8-core) Mac Pros perhaps in tow.

Meanwhile, AppleInsider believes that the update will come in the form of an additional iPod model (http://www.appleinsider.com/article.php?id=2451). The site is careful to note that the new model is not expected to be anything revolutionary, but rather possibly a new color or new edition of the iPod. Such an introduction could see a rumored Beatles special-edition iPod, or a 2 GB (Product) RED iPod Nano.

Of course, the possibility remains that both (or neither) sites' scenarios could come true. A check of MacRumors' Buyers Guide (http://buyersguide.macrumors.com/) indicates that while none of the products mentioned are in dire need of an update, sufficient time has passed for each product that an update would not be unexpected.

I would too since my current iPod shows the sad iPod icon on a regular basis. But wouldn't it be a bit out of character to release something like that without inviting the media to a special event?

I did notice that for the first time in a week there was no refurbs added. Well, they weren't added Sunday OR today. Up till then, every day has had new ones!

Looks like I should sell my iPod nano if a widescreen is coming tomorrow. I don't think there will be a product update though. Surprise me Apple!

MacinDoc
Jan 29, 2007, 06:30 PM
Any product introduced on the day Vista appears on store shelves will be lost in the MS hype. Probably something very minor, like a 2 GB Nano RED, as suggested by AppleInsider.

Interesting that ThinkSecret suggested that if nothing is introduced THIS Tuesday, something may be introduced NEXT Tuesday (PowerBook G5, anyone?). Great prediction! Or maybe the Tuesday after that, or the following one, or maybe one in March...

Apple had better do something about their £529 20" display, however nice the panel used is. That's $1000, which is ridiculous. It was ridiculous a year ago. You can find top-tier manufacturer displays for £250 elsewhere, £300 for equivalent panels.

Why? Apple hasn't promised to introduce anything new and exciting tomorrow, and it's unlikely that Apple will want to share the spotlight with Vista anyway...

...unless Apple wants to upstage Vista with some stunning OS-related announcement...

Both my 3G and 4G iPods are basically dead now, so I'd definitely jump on a touchscreen iPod, even without all the fancy internet stuff.

But I think that may affect iPhone sales, so there'll probably be nothing like this available until Christmas at the earliest.

Jan 29, 2007, 07:18 PM
Lets be realistic:

- No new portables, those will happen in the Spring with the introduction of Santa Rosa. We could probably lump the iMac in there too, as it is the same internal layout, pretty much, as the portables.
- No widescreen iPod, that would require a media event to release
- Apple is an MS competitor that has to use follower company tactics to outwit the MS giant. No way will they put Leopard head-to-head on Vista's release day. Especially if it wont be available for a few months.
- Updated screens could make sense. As well as/in addition to, iSight replacement. And when I say screen updates, I mean price drops and *perhaps* a new feature. There will not be a major aestetic change.
- An 8-Core MacPro, if we see a computer update, is #1 choice, #2 would be a Core2Duo Mini.

wildmac
Jan 29, 2007, 07:22 PM
Don't know what the specs will be, but this fits past history where they released updates to desktop CPUs ~3 weeks after MacWorld. Not a milestone update, more of a revB update.

So MacPro update it will be. (Which is what I've been waiting for every since my Dual 2Ghz G5 blew a processor)

2) the superbowl is this weekend. The biggest advertising day of the year really. -Rumored apple ads to appear at the super bowl. COULD apple release something this week... then Hype it at the super bowl? (Beatles iPod?, etc.)

Not likely with no reporters. If they were going to poke M$ in the eye and hurt their Vista, they would have reporters there. I don't think is an announcement of the secret features either, again no reporters.
Maybe upgrade of the mini to core 2 duo.

Meh. Still waiting for some productivity releases. I've bought everything that's available to help me do my work. Leopard, iwork, ilife, new laptops, anything that's faster and has more features would be welcomed. Until then, I guess they can just keep milking... MOO! :-)

That's the whole deal - the most believable rumour I've seen so far is the announcement of The Beatles songs on iTunes at the Superbowl.

Apple, Inc. won their lawsuit with Apple Corps and the two have reportedly been working very hard to get The Beatles onto iTunes. The deal is supposedly a short-term exclusive deal and will delay the CD release of a remastered anthology with the CD release offset by online download sales from iTunes.

Their next to closing segment is all about Windows Vista tonight. Perhaps Apple wants to try and get similar attention tomorrow evening in order to reduce the Vista buying surge.

Although, I can't imagine why anyone would want to buy Vista right away with so much security crap built into it. :confused:

CBS line is "Is It Worth It?" Anthony Mason says it has been delayed 2 years due to bugs. Then he proceeds to show a woman who, while testing it, asked Microsoft to add a "Burn" option inside their iPhoto rip off program. And so they did. Duh. :rolleyes:

I WAS the one
Jan 29, 2007, 08:05 PM
let me tell you:

If Apple Inc. Doesn't come with an iPod Widescreen (iPhone like without the phone capabilities) the iPod will died. You just can't show the world the next big product, mix three digital needs in one device and then tell consumers that the new SAME iPod "beatles edition" it's a great product... NO WAY.

Apple need to move foward from the old iPod design and concept. Today everybody is waiting for the iPhone, I know that a same kind of iPod in other color don't gonna make me buy it. I'll will compare it with the iPhone and the iPod as we know it today seems OLD right now.

for real, it's better not to show any new iPod if it not going to be a brand new design-concept device.

I wouldnt be surpised to see somthing exiting from Apple tomorrow, it would make sence to steal some of the spotlight away from Microsoft and Windows Vista.

BTW is it just me of does Windows Vista feel a bit cartoonish, I saw it demoed at the store today and it felt like it was just an even more animated version of XP. It has an unprofessional feel to it.

it has been over a month that you can buy an iSight camera from Apple.

My prediction is that part of an Apple announcement is either an updated iSight or displays with cameras built-in.

Ditto,

Right now the MacPro is the one to be update and get the octo-core. Display maybe a price drop and iSight like you said. BUT,
I am itching to buy the octo-core now, But I think Apple will wait until WWDC and have the MacPro redesign and new displays. a whole new system with the Octo-core.
On top of that Leopard will be here and Adobe probably will have CS3 out. So it makes more sense to have this new MacPro machine taking 100% advatage of native power with Leopard and CS3.
I want an widescreen iPod so badly, but I agree that it needs the special event.
Leopard, not happening. Steve said spring so, I believe him.

Dan Uff
Jan 29, 2007, 08:33 PM
Here's what I think....

-> New Airport Extreme now shipping
-> New :apple: AppleTV now shipping
-> Announcement date for shipping Leopard

The above products were announced either at (or during) MacWorld, so Apple wouldn't need another media event for the above.

...or...

New red iPod for Valentine's Day.

"- The Mac Pros also have interchangeable processors. It uses a socket 771. It will accept all the Xeon 51xx series with a 1333 MHz bus (there are Xeons with a 1066 bus which would slow down the machine). The 4 core Xeons are also compatible.
Here is the list of compatible 1333 Mhz bus processors:
* Xeon 5130. 2 cores at 2 GHz and 4 MB of cache
* Xeon 5140. 2 cores at 2.33 GHz and 4 MB of cache
* Xeon 5150. 2 cores at 2.66 GHz and 4 MB of cache
* Xeon 5160. 2 cores at 3 GHz and 4 MB of cache
* Xeon E5345. 4 cores at 2.33 GHz and 8 MB of cache
* Xeon E5355. 4 cores at 2.66 GHz and 8 MB of cache
Again, the 4 core processors will make the fans spin faster. They use 120W versus 80 for a 3 GHz and 60W for the others.

In any case, you will most likely void your warranty by changing the CPU.

I'm hoping for a new 30" display that has dual DVI or HDMI inputs. That way you could switch between two connected computers, or your computer and a HD-DVD/Blu-Ray DVD player.

Also, I think the iPhone will have iChat AV capabilities that integrates with 10.5 and the iSight cameras built-in to all the laptops and new displays.

For tomorrow, I think a boot camp update that is vista compatible is a shoe-in.

Rumored display update?

Damn! I just bought my 30" ACD yesterday in a non Apple local store.

The store may very well have a buyer 'protection' program. I bought a 30" from Fry's, the day before they dropped the price from $1999 to $1499. I walked in a week later, showed the CS dude the receipt. He went to his terminal and spent a couple minutes looking. He came back and asked how I wanted the refund. I told him 'in-store credit'. He printed a form to that effect and I went shopping.

I'm hoping for a new 30" display that has dual DVI or HDMI inputs. That way you could switch between two connected computers, or your computer and a HD-DVD/Blu-Ray DVD player.

Also, I think the iPhone will have iChat AV capabilities that integrates with 10.5 and the iSight cameras built-in to all the laptops and new displays.

For tomorrow, I think a boot camp update that is vista compatible is a shoe-in.Why hope for two when HP offers 3 Dual Link Inputs (http://www.buy.com/prod/hp-lp3065-30-wqxga-2560-x-1600-dvi-x-3-black-silver-widescreen-lcd/q/loc/101/203403527.html?dcaid=17379) already? :rolleyes:

Lets be realistic:

- No new portables, those will happen in the Spring with the introduction of Santa Rosa. We could probably lump the iMac in there too, as it is the same internal layout, pretty much, as the portables.
- No widescreen iPod, that would require a media event to release
- Apple is an MS competitor that has to use follower company tactics to outwit the MS giant. No way will they put Leopard head-to-head on Vista's release day. Especially if it wont be available for a few months.
- Updated screens could make sense. As well as/in addition to, iSight replacement. And when I say screen updates, I mean price drops and *perhaps* a new feature. There will not be a major aestetic change.
- An 8-Core MacPro, if we see a computer update, is #1 choice, #2 would be a Core2Duo Mini.
A Leopard preview to deflate Vista sales are what I would bet on in the next 2-3 weeks.It would be unusual timing to release something on the same day that Vista is released, unless it would be more highly ranked by news sites than the Vista launch (how important is the Vista launch, really? Will it be reported widely? Does it take alot, or hardly anything, to upstage it?)

Widescreen iPod? Sure... it'd be big news but the same stuff delaying the iPhone release would delay this, right?

Leopard preview? Very interesting. You'd need to show all the secrets AND let journalists start playing with it so they could compare. Most PC mags have written their Vista articles... I'm not sure that the preview would beat the MS announcement in the papers.. it'd be an interesting side note that would slip without concrete info.

So what other possibilities? What would get attention? A new design MBP? A MacMini/AppleTV hybrid?

About the only thing I can imagine taking the headline would be an announcement that Dell will start offering OSX on its low-end desktops. That, in conjunction with a Leopard preview, would really get some attention. I DO NOT THINK THAT WILL HAPPEN! :)

yeah seen them both, i got the 24 didn't like it a lot of banding, and returned it, i was looking at the 27 until i saw it had the same resolution as the acd 23, at twice the price, until dell stops sticking every bloody port in the universe on their monitors and bothers upping the resolution, i think i'll pass.

let me tell you:

If Apple Inc. Doesn't come with an iPod Widescreen (iPhone like without the phone capabilities) the iPod will died. You just can't show the world the next big product, mix three digital needs in one device and then tell consumers that the new SAME iPod "beatles edition" it's a great product... NO WAY.

Apple need to move foward from the old iPod design and concept. Today everybody is waiting for the iPhone, I know that a same kind of iPod in other color don't gonna make me buy it. I'll will compare it with the iPhone and the iPod as we know it today seems OLD right now.

for real, it's better not to show any new iPod if it not going to be a brand new design-concept device.

OK. You have told me. I think your post has some merit, but it does not support your conclusion, sorry. I think you are right in stating that the iPod needs to keep current with Apple's leading-edge interface technology. But, why would anyone think they would not do that very thing? This is a company that is making all of the right strategic moves. I doubt if they really need to have the obvious explained to them. Do you not think so?

Sorry if already discussed, I got to page 3 of this thread and just had to post before finishing reading the rest...

Has it been confirmed that Apple will have an advert at the Superbowl? If yes, then I don't think we will see a major release of anything on Jan 30th.

It would be more logical for the big guns to be brought out after the Superbowl -- even if hte big guns are not what was specifically mentioned.

Let's say the Superbowl advert is for a new iPod (Beatles, true Video, whatever) and the annpouncement of the Beatles on iTunes (a new album available every week or so and exclusively or whatever) then new Mac Pro s and monitors and maybe a special 30th anniversary iMac in clasic black

Why announce anything this week?

And I think the whole :apple: tv pre-announcement was to take focus off of the development of the iPhone and possible Video iPod as there was ever increasing speculation not only be rumour sites but in the mainstream media as well...

Here's the deal... about 24 hours ago I paid $227.00 including shipping for an gently used Apple Isight webcam on Ebay. The very same camera I passed up buying 50 times over when it was availible everywhere for $149.00.

The very same camera I thought was a general waste of funds and that I never needed for my business.... until last week!!! Figures!

I am positive... At least one of the items released tomorrow will be the Isight replacement that will do everything perfectly well... the one will make me look 10 lbs lighter, 20 years younger and will make the best darn cup of coffee you've ever tasted and for only $129.00!!!

Something really odd has happened. My Macbook Pro Core 2 Duo (refurb) shipped on friday(standard shipping), and it's left the FedEx place in Sacramento. The weird thing is that sometime today or yesterday I'm no longer charged for the computer.

Is this a sign that maybe they're releasing new Macbook pros, and thus we'll see a price drop in refurb computers and tomorrow they'll charge me the new amount? Or is it normal practice to reserve the amount, drop it, and then (I assume) recharge me a few days later? (Wouldn't mind a free computer tho hehe!!)

Cause if they release a new Macbook pro and/or drop the price of new and refurbs within the next 2 weeks, I'm of course going to return this and buy it again as a cheaper one.

I even called Apple on Thursday to confirm that everything was ok with the payment, which they confirmed.

EDIT: I've checked my account balance multiple times, and I'm definitely not charged for this computer, whereas I was before. And it still says it shipped on Friday according to FedEx. The order details on apple.com remain the same though (pricewise and all)

Makes total sense to me. Shuffles have been great gifts, but I guess it can be annoying if everyone in the family has one and you can't tell them apart. Imagine the goth metal 14 year old with a spice-girl-fan sister accidentally mixing up their shuffles. Bad. Those things have no display, so you can't tell what music is on which. Now the girl can have fashion pink and the goth guy has bloody red.

Damn, a black shuffle would look wicked :cool:

It's naive to think that a preview of unreleased software is going to have any real impact on the sales rate of Vista.

They'd need something major in order to take top billing in the news. Anything Apple does is covered by the media, but Microsoft is THE story for 30 Jan. Apple instead will probably push out some unexciting new products just so it looks like they're not asleep this week.

are you sure. from what I have been hearing its like "oh yeah, vista will be shipping with new computers and you can buy an upgrade" kind of bland and with out the fanfair...
That's the same response XP got from the community, but tomorrow is Microsoft's day. Microsoft has spent a tremendous amount of money for the Vista launch. It also would not work to Apple's advantage to showcase anything about Leopard tomorrow. You never want to put your unfinished ship of dreams product up against a real, brand new product if you can avoid it.

Apple got a lot of mileage out of the 5 years XP sat around decaying, but now that Vista's here, they're back in the game and Leopard's going to need to pack a punch in order to stay ahead. With Leopard as it's been shown thus far, putting it next to Vista draws the inevitable comparison of XP -> Vista v. Tiger -> Leopard. Vista might be way late, but it's finally here, and Leopard is still months away and fairly lackluster without the "top secret" features, a refined and updated UI, or a super new iLife to complement it.

Let's take a step back for just a second.

Apple would be foolish to, and under no circumstances will, release Leopard without any fanfare and on the same day as Vista. Anyone reading here understands by how much Leopard will be superior to Vista, but the general public, and media included, would not give Leopard a lick of coverage on Vista's big day.

The idea of eclipsing Vista's coverage is an interesting one, but one that I can only really see as a slam dunk in one even remotely plausible way. In these weeks leading up to Vista, the technology world and public as a whole has been humming with iPhone fever. More specifically of late, iPhone skepticism. The important part in that Apple still has the headlines. A major announcement, a "one more thing," for the iPhone would be the only bullet that I see Apple having to fire that could independently steal Microsoft's precious press coverage tomorrow. It seems most likely that this would manifest itself in the revealing of the missing app (although I honestly expect this more likely in April/May to regenerate iPhone buzz and shock naysaying critics). While this is possible, and not a terrible idea for Apple from a business perspective, I don't see this happening.

The smaller releases discussed (while most likely what will happen... sigh) seems like a poor idea. Why release anything at all on the day that everyone will be watching Vista. It just seems to be such an illcalculated move.

The best strategy that I can see would be to use the hype for Vista to catapault Apple even further ahead. This would seem to be Bootcamp. While Bootcamp would be a nice idea, I worry if this would actually get any non-mac users attention tomorrow. If this were coupled with a Super Bowl commercial showing Vista and Leopard running together, would be an awesome move, but why waste that release on Vista's release date rather than just dropping it during the game itself for some instant wow factor. It just seems a little to risky.

I think Apple would be best to sit back and drop a couple of announcements a week or two from now rather than go toe to toe. This said, I'll begrudgingly agree that the colored shuffles make the most likely option that we would see tomorrow.

Sigh*

My predictions;

1.) New Shuffles (this is pretty much a given now) in 4 colors
2.) Updated Displays, w/ Cameras, prices remain the same
3.) :apple: TV & Airport now shipping.

I think computer type updates [like 8Core Pro, updated iMac, updated Macbook Pro] will happen sometime later this month, or in February] so they can be released alongside Leopard.

The initial charge verification has expired without being finalized, so it disappears. Don't get your hopes up, the cost of your laptop will soon be flying out of your bank account. They'll just rerun it when they're ready to run the final charge.

Product releases... what about software instead.

Microsoft releases 4 flavours of Vista for hundreds of dollars each - each with only a subset of the functionality.

so the next day Apple trumphs them...

Apple releasing one version of Leopard that does the work of 4 different Vistas.. So it's prices are $79, $79, $79 and $79 ;)

(like the 3 product releases at MacWorld which were just 1 iPhone)

If there a pricedrops in the line (14 days from order date to pricechange date) I will be refunded the difference, right?

And I can return the ACD to Apple within 14 days? (In case there will be a major upgrade)

Yes, you have a 14 day grace period to get a price adjustment should the price change on a product you purchase.

And I can return the ACD to Apple within 14 days? (In case there will be a major upgrade)
Yes, although you may have to pay a 10% restocking/open box fee as stated in their terms. Sometimes, they'll waive the fee if you're polite and make it clear that you'll be purchasing other products rather than simply returning the product. The safe bet is just not to open the box for a couple days, if you're worried. I don't see new displays on the horizon for tomorrow.

ezekielrage_99
Jan 30, 2007, 03:22 AM
either that or release a cross platform ilife/iwork

That would be a hot release because Vista's "iLife" styled suite is complete rubbish. If Apple does release iLife '07 tomorrow it might give us a little insight to what the newer features Leopard will have, anyway if it is released I'll buy it because it's more than worth it.

I'm guessing the release will be coloured iPod Shuffles, iLife '07 and a price drop/updates on the Apple displays. I do agree with Thinksecrets' view on the Dell displays compared to the Apple displays, Apple really needs to drop the price a little.

O, i'm waiting for this. Sooner or later it will have to happen and the Vista rollout seems like a good opportunity to me unless 10.5 isn't ready yet. Maybe now is a bad timing because all the extra work the OEM's have with the Vista launch.

Whatever, i'm keeping a bottle of good wine for when it happens.

Jan 30, 2007, 04:09 AM
Isn't the release date of Vista tomorrow ? Might be something to stab MS on their day of glory.

Perhaps they should have saved the iPhone until today, and discussed Leopard at the MWSF. I suspect this will be something minor, however, and that Vista will go largely unacknowledged by Apple, who thus far have done more to advertise it than MS - i.e. the Vista 2.0 banners.

Ooohh bloody nutter. The MP I ordered was shipped yesterday, and there's a prediction to update today for the Mac pro:/. And I'm expecting my MP to come today.

BLOODY HELL! bollocks :/.


I do have an ACD going back. Maybe I should give them a call and cancel it, and reorder the new ACD if there's indeed an update to the current ACDs.

Funny thing was, I did have a 'problem' to my shipping. Apple wouldn't specify what it was. Maybe they were trying to tell me that they're updating my system. It happened before (to the 15" MBP I think it was? Or Mac Mini?). And I gave 'em a hard time for not shippin' it on time. (I didn't exactly yelled and cussed and such, but I told them I want it to be shipped on the same day). I should've let them kept it delayed, then maybe I could change my configuration.


Comfort me :P :(

They will probably give you the updated version for the same price. If you recently (like past week or so), I think Apple will let you trade it in for free as well.

No, it wouldn't. With Windows market share, they would still get the bulk of the press coverage. Let's be real, it's only an OS and the vast majority of people couldn't care less.

Product introductions, like the iPhone, are what people care about. Look at all the press that got or how much press a new iPod introduction gets.

Leopard: Unlikely - we're still seeing seeds coming out which suggests they havn't hit GM yet, and with no press conference type event or anything? Makes no sense not to mention Vista release etc.

ipods: Updates wouldn't seem out of the question - they are the one thing that is going to really give apple some coverage in the media and just in time for some media blitz for superbowl or whatever it is you guys go on about?

Displays: Oh for the love of all things apple they need an update. Update as in a price slash and perhaps a built in isight. They are so so so way of the price mark its rediculous and i find myself buying dell monitors for clients rather than apple ones... pull your fingers out apple it aint good enough.

Mac Pros: Boy would i love to see an update. I doubt i'll get it but considering im in the market for one and an apple display (if the price is reasonable) im a little biased. Knowing myluck they wont' update till WWDC but that would be madness!

While the pink nano does indeed seem wider, the reason the Apple logo isn't visible is because it is clearly lower than the black nano...

Tomorrow im sure they will make an update to the ipod line up to take some of the buzz Vista will be making. Thats all. Major updates will probably come after the release of leopard(Computers) as for very new ipod models, well time and :apple: will tell. Probably Feb 20?

If they're not careless and that is a new product then going by that picture we're also looking at:

2. A taller iPod nano (the black one is taller than the iPod on the right but a fraction shorter than the one on the left)

Something really odd has happened. My Macbook Pro Core 2 Duo (refurb) shipped on friday(standard shipping), and it's left the FedEx place in Sacramento. The weird thing is that sometime today or yesterday I'm no longer charged for the computer.

Is this a sign that maybe they're releasing new Macbook pros, and thus we'll see a price drop in refurb computers and tomorrow they'll charge me the new amount? Or is it normal practice to reserve the amount, drop it, and then (I assume) recharge me a few days later? (Wouldn't mind a free computer tho hehe!!)

Cause if they release a new Macbook pro and/or drop the price of new and refurbs within the next 2 weeks, I'm of course going to return this and buy it again as a cheaper one.

I even called Apple on Thursday to confirm that everything was ok with the payment, which they confirmed.

EDIT: I've checked my account balance multiple times, and I'm definitely not charged for this computer, whereas I was before. And it still says it shipped on Friday according to FedEx. The order details on apple.com remain the same though (pricewise and all)

they are probably just changing their company name to the :apple: symbol itself, (pending drastic changes to the way the internet works allowing us to somehow type the symbol into the url bar and hit enter) and rebranding everything accordingly, :apple: books, :apple: book pros, :apple: s and :apple: pros.. probably branching off into fruit smoothie bars while they are at it..

:apple: is the new I people, get used to it. :apple: :rolleyes: :apple:

UK store down too.

So I was several posts late. So what???

And Apple Australia's store is down too (although we don't get the RED editions here-if a another RED model was added).

Well, it must have a very big picture.... why else would the store be down THIS long.

C'mon Apple, let us in to see the goodies - yet I find myself braced for a big dissapointment!

*Crosses fingers* Please don't be anything I want.

Must. Not. Spend. Money. :(

I just bought I new 20" iMac.... I hope Apple doesn't release anything too enticing ;)

The RED iPod nano appeared on the edu page about the time the store went back up after MWSF here. You couldn't click on it and it was gone about an hour later.

Didn't report it, just thought someone stuffed up.

Bloody Kiwis get it though... :mad:
